Add twin breakers (2 circuits per space) to panel

I often find twin or tandem breakers in existing panels. There is no way to circuit them now.

        I am wonding if this is an opportunity to solve just the opposite problem. Many breaker panels of old and of new has the ability to put a single, two, or three pole breaker in that takes twice as many spaces as normal. Example is I have a panel I have to represent that has a 2 pole breaker that takes position 36-38 and 40-42. It also has a 3 pole breaker in it that take 24-26,28-30,32-34. I have no way of circuiting the device and still have it on phase A, B, and C.

        This is a bear to solve with DM. You have to increase the poles in the panels to handle the A & B circuit from like 42 to 58 or something like that. However, now you are calling circuit 58 what is really circuit 42B. So it isn't that we can't do twin breakers, we can't get the circuit naming correct and the panel scedule says it is a 58 circuit panel when it is really 42. Seams you guys can make this happen :-)

        Great for TI's! We really need this!
